My Mom’s Flombre mittens are done! They are to go with the Flombre hat I knit a little earlier this year She very kindly wove the ends in, as I am pretty lazy about that. So that is my last FO for the year. Tomorrow I cast on a new cardigan, and continue on with… Continue reading Last FO of 2022
I am really loving the alliteration right now 🙂 I’ve got two projects on the go right now – the Just Beachy shawl and the Flombre mittens. I’d like to finish one or the other of them by the year end, and it certainly won’t be the shawl. So I’ve set that aside for the… Continue reading Mitten Monday
My cardigan is finally done!! Patten is Drops 106-11 Jacket with Shawl Collar. (Ravelry link) The yarn is Tivoli Collezione S. Charles (?) 52% silk and 48% kid mohair, so it is beautifully drapey.

Plowing was pretty slow to happen, so schools got cancelled and all kinds of things shut down. Things were almost back to normal by… Continue reading Snowmageddon
I’m back to having three projects on the needles! First is my Drops cardigan, which I’m knitting out of yarn hand dyed by my friend Alissa of Headknits. I started this over the summer and then set it aside for some Halloween knitting. At this point, the back and fronts are done and I am… Continue reading Wednesday WIPs
This is my second short cowl from the Holiday Doodle cowl pattern. It’s a pretty simple one – the pattern has a lot of lovely stranded knitting motifs included, but I just picked a couple for this one. The yarn is all Knit Picks Swish in White, Arctic, Serene, and Dusk. I’m happy with it… Continue reading Snowflake Cowl is Done!
